EE is so shit


EE formerly known as T-mobile is so shit, although they offer for users to top-up £1.00 for 7 days, you can’t top-up another £1.00 if you have used-up all your credit or minutes before the 7 day period but I have my own trick to out-win them since they think they are so clever, I will just buy another SIM and put £1.00 on it, haha, fools !

Films on BBC


The BBC create some of the weirdest shit, they cant create or show a proper film/movie. Salvage, a film shown by the BBC is a complete and utter waste of time. Nothing much happens in the movie apart from running around and screaming like mad and just towards the end a monster that pisses like people turns up and thats the end. What a bunch of fools who created that movie.

Why Linux is Rubbish


Today I will be talking about Linux and in particular Ubuntu.

Just started to use linux – and its bloody rubbish because nothing works. For  a start you cant find ‘My computer’ or a way to access your drives. Here is an example what you see on logging onto linux:

Unless you poke around in the dark you wont find where the drives are hidden. You have to blindly poke around at the top of the screen only then a menu appears but doesn’t do anything unless you click on it. Once you poke around the menu you will find it under ‘Go’

Linux is a huge learning curve, even using Ubuntu – the latest version. The transition from Windows to Linux is slow. I am not against Mac’s or Linux but this is first-hand experience of using linux.

Linux is good for people who:

  • People who want easy security
  • People who want a unique look and feel
  • People who like the idea of open source software
  • Programmers who enjoy contributing to free open source software
  • People who only use the computer for basic needs and don’t want to be bothered by viruses and spyware.
  • People who don’t want to have to reboot because there computer starts “running slow” due toadware, spyware, bloatware, etc.

When I first installed linux I was presented with not only the above screen but Firefox. The problem with Firefox is no matter which operating system you use and how much memory the computer has it is slow. Upon trying to view TV channels I found firefox did not have the proper plugins installed such flash and javascript. As a result I was presented with the following:
Upon trying to update the plugins here is what I was presented with
The recommended plugin download site doesn’t exist
So, I went to the flash website and selected the ‘Apt for Ubuntu 10.04+’
Very cryptic and unfriendly user interface, not what I want to see, thank you.
upon clicking ‘use this source:
That is great!
After numerous attempts, I give up.
I then downloaded and installed Chrome. Hurray! Everything works. Maybe it is firefox that is the problem but anyway when installing plugins you do not get these issues in Windows.
  • when you click on anything in Ubuntu, its slow to respond or nothing happens, there is some response after several clicks.
  • Windows 7 looks and feels more 3D
been using Ubuntu all throughout the day today, and have to say the performance is very poor even though there is more than 1 Gb RAM. Slowness, unwilling to respond, sound quality, internet. Just dont know what other people are on about.

With all the good things I been hearing about it Linux/Ubuntu, after all this time I thought finally I could ditch windows and move on to a life with no instability and no insecurity…looks like i got into more trouble than good. Now, having a second opinion.

So, far my opinion is, there is only one thing: ‘Nice interface’.

Its a change, with a learning curve but maybe I’ll give it a few more days, see how it goes but unsure about it. For the moment its like a testing ground for poking around in the dark.

9.22pm Linux has bug in it and needs to be fixed. Anything you click on does not respond, it responds only after repeated attempts of poking at it. Internet is slower than windows even though the speed of both have been measured.
9.30pm working with linux all day, feels like its a cartoon. There is a reason and difference between paid software and free software and now i felt it and see it.
9.38pm Linux is not a replacement for windows
9.47pm trying to use gedit to save a file. Its better than notepad and you can save by clicking on the disk icon but to save it in a different place, there is no file menu or one included in the disk icon to do a ‘save as…’ to save in a different place.
9.50pm you have to be really, very intelligent to realise the ‘file, save as’ menu is not associated with gedit its associated with the taskbar on the top.
10.50pm had enough of Ubuntu for a day, going back to windows 7
Conclusion: Ubuntu is a disaster! , its like selling a old banged-up car with a nice bird on it, thats what the red cloak is on the desktop. Even as I write this blog, the layout is a bit messed up which I never encounter when writing it in Windows. Maybe linux is for programmers not to get any real work done.
Overall, linux is an outdated piece of software, operating system, kernal or whatever you want to call it because most of the things in Linux will require you to use the Terminal (command line) . We live in the 21st century and are approaching the 22nd soon, we went well past the days of DOS operating system but linux continues in the footstep of the command line or ‘terminal’, what is this an airport ?!
Many people think they are really technical because they use linux. That is partly true because they are programmers, like the command prompt – the age old way of doing things and simply because ‘linux’ sounds a bit new and complicated for the not so technical and to those who haven’t used linux aka windows/mac users .
The good thing about it is in Windows, your either stuck using the boring default desktop theme, or risking corruption or failure by installing a third-party shell.

To use linux you need to become familiar with the Linux operating system which requires patience as well as a strong learning curve. You must have the desire to read and figure things out on your own, rather than having everything done for you – no thanks, I would like to get my videos edited, applications installed, type the email, word process the documents, print, scan, etc, etc, do the important things that need doing not messing around, trying to fix some broken tool.

Real linux (not ubuntu and the similar) is all about scripting but why re-invent the wheel with a script that will clear files from a directory such as:
#!/bin/bash
# Cleanup, version 3# Warning:
# ——-
# This script uses quite a number of features that will be explained
#+ later on.
# By the time you’ve finished the first half of the book,
#+ there should be nothing mysterious about it.LOG_DIR=/var/log
ROOT_UID=0 # Only users with $UID 0 have root privileges.
LINES=50 # Default number of lines saved.
E_XCD=86 # Can’t change directory?
E_NOTROOT=87 # Non-root exit error.# Run as root, of course.
if [ “$UID” -ne “$ROOT_UID” ]
then
echo “Must be root to run this script.”
exit $E_NOTROOT
fi

if [ -n “$1” ]
# Test whether command-line argument is present (non-empty).
then
lines=$1
else
lines=$LINES # Default, if not specified on command-line.
fi

# Stephane Chazelas suggests the following,
#+ as a better way of checking command-line arguments,
#+ but this is still a bit advanced for this stage of the tutorial.
#
# E_WRONGARGS=85 # Non-numerical argument (bad argument format).
#
# case “$1” in
# “” ) lines=50;;
# *[!0-9]*) echo “Usage: `basename $0` file-to-cleanup”; exit $E_WRONGARGS;;
# * ) lines=$1;;
# esac
#
#* Skip ahead to “Loops” chapter to decipher all this.

cd $LOG_DIR

if [ `pwd` != “$LOG_DIR” ] # or if [ “$PWD” != “$LOG_DIR” ]
# Not in /var/log?
then
echo “Can’t change to $LOG_DIR.”
exit $E_XCD
fi # Doublecheck if in right directory before messing with log file.

# Far more efficient is:
#
# cd /var/log || {
# echo “Cannot change to necessary directory.” >&2
# exit $E_XCD;
# }

tail -n $lines messages > mesg.temp # Save last section of message log file.
mv mesg.temp messages # Rename it as system log file.

# cat /dev/null > messages
#* No longer needed, as the above method is safer.

cat /dev/null > wtmp # ‘: > wtmp’ and ‘> wtmp’ have the same effect.
echo “Log files cleaned up.”
# Note that there are other log files in /var/log not affected
#+ by this script.

exit 0
# A zero return value from the script upon exit indicates success
#+ to the shell.

when you can simply open a folder with a click of a mouse and delete the contents of folder/directory.

The above is the actual script or lines of code you need to write or download and execute in order to delete a folder of files. How efficient!

It doesn’t feel like linux is for people to do serious work. I know people who just want to type their documents, email and browse, or just run their business, simple.

THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT IS I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY USER IN REAL LIFE USE LINUX. But i do know one or two installed it for test purposes to see what its like and then they ditched it, so i think its fake as well, although Unix isn’t since I have seen it in a University lab.

It looks like partly, linux is for those people who had a passion for dos and windows came in and they got left out of using dos and missed it a lot and then someone came out with their own idea of linux which will carry on using the command line.

As ‘James’ talks about Linux in his blog it seem linux is a fan-boyz club who just like tweaking the system even worse than windows. Linux is all about code and programming although the newer version of linux are more about trying out different shells as if you do that in windows you will corrupt the file system.

Criminals


Barclay’s Bank are criminals – they set a reserve amount on current accounts so you dont go over the red however, what is the point of giving all current account holders a reserve amount if they are going to charge £22 everytime account holders go into the red. They are idiot, fools, barclays bank is just a scam. When you ask for an overdraft even though you are their loyal customer for years they never give you an overdraft they always have some silly stupid excuse or even no excuse. It is proven that other banks dont operate this type of scam but only barclays does and as a result a lot of their customers have moved to other banks but they still dont get the message. Barclays is the only bank that punishes people for going over and it is a shame the Boris bikes by the London Mayor Boris Jonson is associated with them!

BHS credit card are another criminals – on a balance of £566.16 they take out £14.15 minimum payment and then charge another £14.81 interest which is known as ‘new transactions’ even when you have not used your card you are using it. Its  a bit like someone using your credit card without your knowledge but although you havent really made any new purchases or withdrawls using your card there is a ‘new transaction’. Oh yes, that is perfectly legal for Bhs credit card to make a transaction without using your card and putting it on your statement. its called ‘interest’ – what a civilised capitalist society we live in. Bhs my arse!, idiots!

KFC reuse food dropped on the floor


It is outrageous what restaurants get up to where the customer(s) cant see whats happening in the kitchen. The restaurant would reuse chicken that had been dropped on the floor,  as a result a woman is severly ill with brain damage.  Read Full story

Tesco are mercyless


Even if you have four pence short of a product, tesco will not accept your money even if you buy 20 items or 1 item. So, when shopping at tesco never buy an item even if it is one penny less else where. They are idiots.

Energy Suppliers are criminals


Most of the well known energy suppliers are criminals. I have first hand experience of British Gas and EDF Energy they tell you after querying an earlier bill that because your previous payments had been estimated you now owe some hundreds or thousands of pounds. One very good recent example is ‘E. On’ ,  charged Peterborough charity a £78,000 bill. Full story

But this is the fate and society we live in because there so many people who suffer in the hands of criminals like these but no one makes their stand to do anything about it. When you make a complaint the criminal suppliers are always in the right. They will always give you an explanation or make an excuse which always concludes the customer is never right but they supplier is. People need to stand up whether for themselves or in groups and take action and even go beyond if required because we live in a democratic but yet hypocritic / corrupt society which his hidden between small print.

Plenty of Fish (POF) Review


Plenty of Fish  or POF one of the worlds largest free dating websites is a joke and full of rejects and fake profiles. It consists of men who are looking for fun and relationships to women who have spent most of their lives with the wrong bloke and some who have left life to the end. Now in their mid to late thirties and forties these people are now looking for a serious life partner as some have realised this is the start of life before they need a walking stick very. Some of the people on this site moody. Some of the women on the site even those ones in their late 30’s are looking for fit men or actor like figures as if they are still teens in college. Some people expect chemistry to develop at the first instance at a drink but what they dont realise it does not take just a drink to click. It is a process which develops slowly but thoses are the desperate ones who have left their lives too late and only started getting serious now about having a relationship where most of there lives they spent it either working or playing. A common ground amongst indian women are: were they back in their native country in the villages then they would have been tradional indians. However, in western society they have lost their roots.

 Many people on POF do not know their heights, some are confused, are putting fake heights or they are short but wearing high heels to make them look tall. There are many people who are having a go at each in one way or another in their profiles. In the majority of cases men and women both, are only interested in judging a book by its cover i.e. only looking out for their partner whether they want to date or have a relationship in terms of looks. Both men and women are not serious or realistic about the qualities of their true life partner. ‘Looks’ are only the key feature both men and women after. Portrayed by the whole hollywood,/ bollywood culture people only want their partner to be good looking or sexy as in actors or porn starts. Conclusion This is a free dating site, no one is really serious, there are many fake profiles…its is one of worst dating site disasters.

Internet Explorer 9 is Rubbish


I have Internet explorer 9 on a brand new pc and half the things on it does not work when other browers such chrome does not have any problems. Youtube videos do not work only one or two work even after downloading a flash update/plugin, IE9 is also slow. When will thoses bozo’s at Microsoft learn that when you switch on a Mac everything is there and there are no issues. Microsoft give PC’s a bad reputation because some people think PC’s are rubbish they only half work. This is the reason why Mac’s and Linux have an increase in sales. People are moving away from Windows to Mac and Linux, its time for Gates and his team to retire or get their act sorted out.
